The Road From Coorain: An Australian Memoir
Mandarin, 1990 (Reprint)

Paperback, 238pp.

Jill Ker Conway was seven before she saw another girl. At eight she was herding sheep on the drought-haunted plains of her parents' thirty thousand acres. When the dream turned to dust after five rainless years the family moved to Sydney. School, and later university, opened up a new world of ideas but the Australia of her young womanhood in the fifties was too parochial and aggressively masculine for an intelligent, ambitious woman. In this brave and honest account of a family tragedy, Jill Ker Conway conveys a magical sense of the cruel beauty of the Australian landscape.

Good condition paperback with browning, foxed endpages and page curling.
